GRADE 5: Tanach and traditions
Ourr 5th grade class begins to pull together their prayer skills as they study the Shabbat morning service, with a special emphasis on the Amidah and vocabulary-building through the use of shoreshim (root words). Students are treated to a series of mini-courses including kashrut, menschlakeit, and Intro to Text Study. We are introduced to midrash, and begin learning how we make ethical decisions based on our ancient texts. An in-depth study of Biblical history, beginning with Abraham, gives these more mature students a chance to revisit their Bible stories from a historical point of view.
